“A friend who worked in CKHA’s emergency department described it as a fast-paced, collegial, and supportive environment,” he said. “When I heard this, I was excited to join the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance team as I began my career focused on emergency medicine.”

Su attended McGill University and received a bachelor of science degree with honors in 2015, with first-class honors in pharmacology.

He received his doctorate in medicine from the Schulich School of Medicine, Western University, Windsor campus. He completed his residency in family medicine in 2021 at Mount Sinai Hospital.

He completed an additional fellowship in hospital medicine at the University of Toronto.

“I’m excited about this opportunity at CKHA, not just for medical care itself, but also for the community,” Su said. “I think one of the best ways to learn about a community is through the patients, and why you become a hospital doctor is not only taking care of their medical condition, but being a part of their lives through your care.”
